Al Jazeera under attack in Libya.

Ali Hassan Al Jaber, a cameraman working for Al-Jazeera was shot and killed in Benghazi, Libya on 13 March 2011.

During the turmoil of the last month in the Middle East, Al- Jazeera has been praised for its daring and courageous covering of the unfolding events. Often this coverage has seen resistance and opposition from the countries from within which it has been reporting from.

Al Jazeera issued a statement saying that the killing of the camera man "comes as part of the Libyan regime's malicious campaign targeting Al Jazeera and its staff".
